, the street was abuzz with activity. hoboken city police, jersey city police, bomb squad representatives and the fbi. the reason was they were going into the apartment of ryan lanza who is the brother of the shooter, the suspected shooter adam lanza. apparently adam had his brother's i.d. on him when he went into the school and conducted the shooting. so authorities went right to ryan's apartment in hoboken, took him into custody briefly for questioning also questioned some friends who may have lived with him there. it was just a confusing situation. they removed some materials from that apartment trying to piece together exactly what happened. as the night wore on, the police presence became less and less, i think as they gathered more information and realized that may not have been the center of their interests, shall we say going forward. i'm standing in front of ali, also i should mention the st. rose church of lima where last night there was that candle light vigil. you walk inside the church here and there are two poster boards where people have already posted dozens and dozens of

be able to use that permit to carry a concealed weapon in any city, in any community, in any place in the united states, including new york city and times square, where we actually have very strong laws. so we're not worried about, you know, people carrying concealed weapons where the state has made a decision that some people can do that. that's not what the nra is cog. they want almost everybody to be able to carry almost everywhere and the disasters ensuing from that approach are adding up. they end up in things like connecticut. >> mark and steve, joining us by phone, thanks to both of you, appreciate your time. our third story out front, a blizzard that hammered the midwest may be winding down, but it is causing travel holiday headaches to ramp up. alexandria steele has more on just how rough travel could get this evening and over the weekend. >> good evening, soledad. it has been incredibly tough travel and tonight is no exception. are you looking at the 6,000 aircraft that are currently in the sky above us trying to get home for the holidays. certainly a lot better than the
. on this street earlier today were hoboken city police, jersey city police. there were bomb squad representatives, although they did not go in to the apartment building. also the fbi had a presence here. the fbi did remove materials from this apartment including, we believe, some kind of computer. there are questions about why the brother was taken in to custody at all, especially in handcuffs. one police officer on the scene did tell me that there apparently was some confusion that the brother's i.d. may have been found on the shooter's body in connecticut. that is one police officer who told me that. we are not sure at this time if ryan lanza is still in custody. again, he's the brother of the apparent shooting suspect who was dead and also the son of a woman who was killed today. >> all right. john berman reporting from hoboken. to add to that, the lanza's father was questioned by police. they are not suspects but have been questioned for any kind of information they can lend to this. i mentioned before it is not often you see a president in tears but it wasn't but a few hours this news hit th

to places like new york city or cities in our state and i've always said those exceptions in the absence of a tougher federal legislation is not good for connecticut, not good for our cities and, again, i also have firmly believed that these high-capacity magazines are extremely dangerous. having said that, being in the top five, i think there have been people who previously thought they've done enough in connecticut. i'm not saying i'm one of those. i doubt there is one of those left. >> -- do you think it meets this state law, our state laws -- >> it's been pointed out, and i've taken the time to point it out, that we could be compliant with the previous assault weapons ban limitation by going from a 30 magazine to a 10 magazine. i think that's a commonsense piece of legislation that could be taken up. >> -- enough information to say mental illness played a part in this -- this situation, and how would you go about improving what seems to be a very fractured mental health system? >> the -- with respect -- i don't have a diagnosis. it's possible that the criminal investigation may have

to themselves, how could this happen in our little community here, a small city, small town, 20,000 people, not far from dan bury, as i walk around, people don't know what to say. >> yeah. and i mean, this is the kind of -- i mean a parent never gets over the loss of a child, especially to have it around the holidays and each year that remainder around this time, when everyone else is celebrating. i think people in this community will never forget that and each holiday a remembrance of those whose lives were lost. >> i got in front of me here, this is painful if you look at this. this is the list of the victims the state police released -- >> horrific. >> the 30 people -- excuse me 26 people who were killed at the school. six adults and we see their names and their ages, 29, 47, 52, 30, 56, and 27. but then you see the names of the children and all of them, 20 kids, either 6 or 7 years old, charlotte, 6, daniel, 7, olivia, 6, josephine, 7, anna, 6, dylan, 6. i mean you see these names. you go down, jessica, 6, benjamin, 6. >> to see photographs that the parents are releasing. we're only sh

in a nearby city where we lost a number of our citizens and have been in office through a number of these types of events. you attempt to learn every lesson you can from each one of these, and it's a little early to say what we can take away from this. this is a little bit different in the sense that to the best of my knowledge in school shootings we haven't had people shoot their way into a building. >> right. governor, let me ask you just extrapolating for what you're saying, you want stricter federal gun laws because no matter how strict your state law is, you feel you need an overlay of a federal law, is that right? >> when we talk about the assault weapons ban that was in place in the united states, to have allowed that to go away or dissipate, it's the state's ability to enforce that because guns move across state lines. in fact, a lot of guns used in crimes in connecticut were purchased at -- we know because we can track them. they were purchased at gun shows in other states particularly down in the southern portion of the united states. they work up coast and get here. th
the problem in our cities and unhappily in our schools where people like you have been able to get laws put on the books that keep people from being able to defend themselves. i honestly don't understand why you would rather have people be victims of a crime than be able to defend themselves. it is incomprehensible. >> you're an unbelievably stupid man, aren't you? >> it seems to me you're morally object ob toous and team to prefer to be a victim than being able to prevail over the criminal element. i don't want why you want to be the criminal's friend. >> what a ridiculous argument. have you no coherent argument whatsoever. you don't -- >> you have no -- >> you don't give a damn about the gun murder rate in america. you don't care. >> seems to me -- >> what you would like to see, let's go through this. >> they bounce right off of you. >> okay. that's not just happening on television. that is happening across the country. so consider it a back drop to an effort that's getting under way in washington, d.c. to try to effect something constructive about guns and the violence that's just so per

from new york city. and up here, they go to the mother's house, where they found her body. and this is where they believe it all started with her murder. of course, their big focus is on the school itself. let's move over there and take a look. because authorities believe that after killing his mother, whether immediately, or after a period of time, we don't know, that the gunman went over to the school and there, he had these weapons in his car or some version of these weapons. and he began to move in on the school itself. we had a better picture, a close are timeline looking at radio reports and other eyewitness accounts. 9:30 in the morning is when we believed he would have actually approached the school itself, leaving, we think, this car over here. they put a lot of focus on it. and even if it were this car, he would have come this way, up to these front doors. and earlier it was mentioned this new security system, that prevented the first barrier to him. because it was locked at a time. and there was a report late on from authorities that said the glass had been brok
